Boston to Blue Hills Greenway Corridor Project

Imagine... a continuous greenway trail from Dorchester to Canton!

The Blue Hills Reservation is one of the largest areas of greenspace in the greater Boston area, and although hundreds of thousands of people live within a few miles of it, the Reservation is not easily accessible by foot, bike, or public transit.

NepRWA is working with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) on a project that aims to create a continuous greenway corridor (or multiple) between Boston and the Blue Hills.

We are broadly defining a “greenway” as running through a corridor of open space where possible, separated from traffic to accommodate walking, cycling, and rolling. The greenway could be some combination of shared-use paths or protected bike lanes (with adjacent sidewalks).

We’re hoping this project can help fill a long-overdue gap in the network to allow more people to access the region’s largest public park by foot, bike, or other wheeled devices.

We need your input!

We’re conducting a survey to get local residents’ input. Let us know what you think about creating a Boston to Blue Hills trail! The survey ends on August 1, 2023.
